Rua Rí is a singer-songwriter from Cobh in Cork. Growing up on an island, it is rare that the sea does not bleed into the folk artists music in one way or another. Other influences of his music include 70s folk and traditional Irish music. Expressing his identity through music has always been important to the 21-year-old, who writes warm, melodic folk songs accompanied with his own distinct vocal tone and accent. The artists’ first release, ‘Shepherd’s Delight,’ is a 5-track homemade EP that he recorded with the help of his friends.
